IOWA ENVIROTHON STATE FFA 
 

Please pass congratulations to the L-M FFA Gold Envirothon Team for winning the State FFA Envirothon title!!!

Bryar, Morgan, Addison, Wylie, and Karson were the top placed FFA team and the 2nd place team overall at the

Iowa Envirothon Contest held at Jester Park in Des Moines. They will represent Iowa at the 2019 National FFA

Convention in October in either the National FFA Forestry CDE or National FFA Environmental & Natural Resource CDE.

We will get to choose which contest we want to compete in.

 

Please also send congrats to the L-M FFA Black Team for doing great today also!!

That team was Cody, Max, Jayden, Chase, and Gage! 

 

Both teams completed practicums over Forestry, Wildlife, Aquatics, Soils, and Farm Conservation, along with giving a    

15-minute oral presentation over a crop and cattle farm scenario where they had to recommend management practices

to improve soil health, conservation, reduce nutrient and soil runoff, improve wildlife and pollinator habitat, maintain

profitability in the short and long term, and show how their recommended management practices would benefit the

environment, local Community, and help world food security.

 

These guys did an amazing job and worked very hard over the past 4 weeks preparing for the regional and state contests!
